LIMITED LIABILITY PARTNERSHIP

LLP is one of the easiest types of business to incorporate and manage in India. With an easy incorporation process and simple compliance formalities, LLPs are preferred by Professionals, Micro and Small businesses that are family-owned or closely-held. Since LLPs are not capable of issuing equity shares, LLP should NOT be chosen for any business that has plans for raising equity funds from Angel Investors, Venture Capitalist or Private Equity Funds.

Difference between LLP & Partnership

LLPs are registered in India under the Ministry of Corporate Affairs, Central Government. Partnership firms are registered with the Registrar of Firms, Controlled by the respective State Government in which the firm is registered.

Number of Partners

LLPs and Partnership Firms must have a minimum of two partners to be registered. Post incorporation, a LLP can have unlimited partners. In case of a Partnership Firm, if the number of partners at any time reduces below the mandatory minimum of 2 due to death, incapacitation or resignation of a Partner, the partnership firm would stand dissolved. On the other hand, in case of a LLP, if the number of Partners reduces below 2, the sole Partner can still find a new Partner to fill the position without dissolution of the LLP.

Limited Liability Protection

The main advantage of a Limited Liability Partnership over a traditional partnership firm is that in a LLP, one partner is not responsible or liable for another partner's misconduct or negligence. A LLP also provides limited liability protection for the owners from the debts of the LLP. However, unlike private limited company shareholder, the partners of an LLP have the right to manage the business directly.

Non-Resident Indian (NRI) & Foreign Ownership of LLP

Post changes to FDI regulations on 10th, November 2015, 100% FDI in LLP is permitted under the automatic route. In most sectors, 100% FDI in LLP is allowed through the automatic route, and there are no FDI-linked performance conditions. In addition, LLPs will also be permitted to make downstream investment in another company or LLP in sectors in which 100% FDI is allowed under the automatic route. Therefore, FDI in LLP is now permitted, and NRIs or Foreign Nationals can start or invest in an LLP.
